Dr. Chan war so freundlich, die Welt an meinem Geburtstag auf folgenden Sachverhalt aufmerksam zu machen:
„… HLH Guideline Recommendations
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a deadly and severe hyperinflammatory syndrome that is caused by an overactivation of immune cells. It typically manifests with a sepsis-like syndrome with high fever and rapidly progressive organ failure in the context of a very high cytokine storm and levels of inflammatory biomarkers such as ferritin. The presentation of inherited primary HLH, and secondary HLH triggered by infection or malignancy, is virtually indistinguishable from cytokine release syndrome (CRS) seen in CAR T-cell and other cancer immunotherapies, and macrophage activating syndrome in autoimmune diseases.
In the report, „Recommendations for the management of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in adults„, current members of the working group „HLH in Adults“ of the Histiocyte Society published guideline recommendations based on expert opinion supported by the best available evidence from studies supporting the individual statements on the treatment of HLH. Citing specific case evidence on the CytoSorb extracorporeal cytokine adsorber in the guidelines on salvage treatment of relapsed and refractory HLH, authors state, „the use of cytokine adsorption columns may aid in rescuing critically ill patients from a deleterious cytokine storm.“ This represents one of the first examples of CytoSorb being included into medical practice guidelines.“

Muss jetzt weiter… das vegane Abendessen sah heute übrigens so aus:
